Oats Market Trends/Drivers:

Rising health awareness among the masses

At present, the increasing health awareness among the masses is positively influencing the growth of the global oats market. Oats are perceived as nutritious and wholesome food, rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. As people become more health-conscious and seek healthier food choices, oats are gaining popularity due to their various health benefits, such as lowering cholesterol levels, supporting weight management, and promoting digestive health. The rising prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases, including cardiovascular issues and diabetes, is also propelling the demand for oats as a part of preventive health measures. Furthermore, the global trend towards clean eating, which promotes the consumption of less processed, more natural foods, is bolstering the demand for oats.

Increasing consumption of gluten-free and plant-based diets

The increasing consumption of gluten-free and plant-based diets is positively influencing the growth of the oats market. The shift toward these dietary trends is a result of growing health awareness, environmental concerns, and changing consumer preferences. Gluten-free diets are becoming highly popular due to a surge in diagnoses of gluten-related disorders, such as celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, along with a wider public perception that gluten-free diets contribute to overall health and well-being. Moreover, there is an increase in the popularity of plant-based diets, driven by a combination of health, ethical, and environmental motivations. As consumers increasingly turn to plant-derived proteins and fibers, the demand for oats is growing significantly.

Growing demand for convenient and ready-to-eat (RTE) food products

At present, there is an increase in the demand for convenient and ready-to-eat (RTE) food products among the masses as they eliminate the hassle of cooking. The fast-paced society, characterized by busy lifestyles, dual-income families, and urbanization, is leading consumers to seek out foods that are nutritious and quick, and easy to prepare.
